Justice Crew Spend 4th Week On Top Of ARIA Singles

Justice Crew clock up their fourth week at number one on the ARIA singles chart this week.

For a fourth week, local singing/dancing troupe Justice Crew hold onto the No.1 spot on the ARIA Singles Chart with “Que Sera”, which is the longest run at the top for an Australian artist since “Battle Scars” for Guy Sebastian (which knocked off their first #1 “Boom Boom”) stayed atop for six week from mid-August 2012.

Milky Chance stays on hold at No.2 for a second week with “Stolen Dance” and jumping up five spots to a new peak of No.3 is Mr. Probz with “Waves”, both tracks now certified Gold (●) in sales, whilst climbing back up a place to No.4 is Sia with “Chandelier”, which picks up a 2x▲Platinum certification. And making the ARIA chart a very European week we have a German (Milky Chance), Dutch (Mr Probz) and now Norwegian act within the Top 5 in the form of the duo Nico & Vinz who jump up six places to No.5 with “Am I Wrong?”. The last Norwegian act to crack the Top 10 was Ylvis with “The Fox” back in late October of 2013.

We do also have four Australian acts within the Top 10, with one of them landing the new No.1 spot on the US Billboard charts, Iggy Azalea with “Fancy”, which is back up three places to a new peak of No.6 here. She becomes the first female Australian artist to top their charts since Olivia Newton-John did it in November 1981 with “Physical”, plus she also sits in the top two spots on the Billboard chart with her appearance on the Ariana Grande track “Problem”, which this week here drops four places to No.8. These two tracks are the first two entries in the USA for Iggy, and the last act to hit the top two with their first two chart entries were The Beatles in 1964, so it’s a feat not often repeated.

Zhu peaked at No.3 last week, and drops four to No.7 this week, but his track “Faded” does land a ▲Platinum sales certification, whilst the remaining Top 10 is made up of Sam Smith who drops two places to No.9 with “Stay With Me” (the new UK #1 single this past week) plus his debut album “In the Lonely Hour” debuts at No.2, and Sheppard land an eighth week within the Top 10 by dropping four places to No.10 with their former No.1 “Geronimo”.

NEW PEAKS & MOVERS: Ed Sheeran is back up a place to No.11 with “Sing” which is now ▲Platinum in sales and rising back to its former peak of No.13 is DJ Snake and Lil’ Jon with “Turn Down for What”. After her appearance on Channel 7’s ‘Sunday Night’ program last weekend, Dami Im and her new track “Super Love” jumps up nine places to a new peak of No.16, whilst up seven to No.22 is Tove Lo with “Stay High”. Illy holds his peak of No.27 for a second week with “Tightrope” and climbing back up are Katy Perry with “Birthday” (31 to 28) and Samantha Jade with “Up!” (37 to 32). In between those two tracks is Kiesza with “Hideaway” which is up four places to a new peak of No.31 and returning to the Top 100 after falling out last week, and landing a new peak in the process is Tiesto featuring Matthew Koma with “Wasted” at No.48.

DOWN DOWN: After climbing back into the Top 10 at No.10 last week, “Magic” for Coldplay falls back down to No.15, with their “Ghost Stories” album holding at No.1 for a second week, whilst Rita Ora is down a little to No.17 with “I Will Never Let You Down” which is now ▲Platinum. Justin Timberlake falls down five to No.25 with “Not a Bad Thing” and down seven to No.30 are 5SOS with “She Looks So Perfect”. “Rather Be” for Clean Bandit is down to No.38 and 360 is down to No.42 with “Live it Up” (now Gold ●), whilst dropping hard are Pharrell Williams with “Marilyn Monroe” (32 to 43) and Michael Jackson with JT on “Love Never Felt So Good” (28 to 46), and falling out of the Top 50 are The Amity Affliction with “Don’t Lean on Me” (24 to 51), “Shot Me Down” for David Guetta (49 to 58), “I Got U” by Duke Dumont (46 to 59) and “Good Girls” for 5SOS (30 to 62).

THE VOICE: Battle Rounds; With the acts picked for the four teams, the Battle Rounds started on The Voice last Sunday night, which helps current songs to rise and some new and re-entries into the charts. Emeli Sande is new at No.34 with “Clown”, which becomes her seventh Top 100 and sixth Top 50 appearance, whilst one place lower “Strong” for London Grammar leaps back up fifty-two places to No.35. Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” is back up twenty-eight spots to No.45, whilst just outside the Top 50, “Demons” for Imagine Dragons rebounds twenty-six spots to No.53. Two Avicii tracks were covered in the shows, with “Hey Brother” back up sixteen to No.60 whilst the other track “Addicted to You” is only down place to No.63. The four judges did a performance of the Havana Brown track “Warrior” at the start of Sunday’s show, and that helps the former No.11 single back into the charts at No.65, whilst there is also a return at No.89 for the Miley Cyrus track “The Climb” (HP-5).

The highest new entry of the week comes in at No.21 and is a former UK No.1 single and the current New Zealand #1, UK drum and bass duo Sigma with “Nobody to Love” which has also hit the top in Scotland, and the tracks looped vocal is a sample of the Kanye West track “Bound 2” (HP-56, December 2013). The other Top 30 debut is new at No.23, One Direction with “You & I” which becomes the fourth single from their current ‘Midnight Memories’ album, plus their sixteenth Top 100 entry and eleventh Top 50 placement. And the final Top 50 entry is new at No.37, Nicki Minaj with “Pills N’ Potions”, which is the first taste from her forthcoming third album “The Pink Print”. This new entry becomes her fifteenth Top 50 appearance and her twenty-first Top 100 entry, her last being as guest vocals on the Chris Brown track “Love More” (HP-29, August 2013).

Lower 50: There are quite a few new peaks in the lower fifty, but they are all down at eighty or below, the first being “Salvation” for Gabrielle Aplin, up nineteen spots to No.80, whilst Austin Mahone and Pitbull return to the Top 100 at a new peak of No.82 with “MMM Yeah” (former peak #94, April 2014). Iggy Azalea’s older track “Work” is up five spots to a new chart height of No.83; whilst the only new certifications lower down is “Counting Stars” for OneRepublic (now 6x▲Platinum) and the final re-entry at No.98 is One Direction’s “Story of My Life”.

Angus and Julia Stone will be releasing their self-titled third album at the start of August, and the first taste from that album debuts at No.56 entitled “Heart Beats Slow” which becomes the duos fourth chart entry. Also making a long overdue return to the ARIA Singles chart are Nero who land their third Top 100 entry at No.67 with “Satisfy”, their previous two entries occurred in 2011, the biggest being “Promises” (HP-33, peaked Oct 2011). Beyonce is new one place lower at No.68 with “Pretty Hurts” the third single from her current self-titled (TW-61) album and it becomes her twenty-ninth overall solo chart entry. Local singer Alison Wonderland just finished a national tour, and she lands her first chart entry this week by debuting at No.69 with “I Want U”.

Lana Del Rey climbs with her current chart entries “West Coast” (65 to 55) and from the film ‘Maleficent’ “Once Upon a Dream” (new peak at No.94), whilst she also debuts with a fourth Top 100 entry (Young & Beautiful is at #45) this week, new at No.79 is “Shades of Cool”. Megan Washington appeared on RockWiz on Monday night singing her new single “Limitless” which debuts at No.95 this week to become her fifth Top 100 chart entry (none have reached the Top 50 {yet}), whilst another local artist Allday is new at No.97 with “Cult”, a taste from his forthcoming debut album ‘Startup Cult’ (out July 4th), and finally debuting at No.99 are Royksopp and Robyn with “Do it Again”, the bands first chart entry and the sixth for Robyn, who hasn’t charted since 2008 and scored her first entry here back in 1997 with “Do You Know (What it Takes)” (HP-48), which also means she has placed a chart entry here in Australia over the past three decades (1990’s, 2000’s and 2010’s).
